you've seen, and the polls show it, the romney/ryan ticket has momentum. the polls have tightened in recent days following mitt romney's performance, where he obviously won that debate. there's a lot more attention here. if joe biden is able to perform very well -- and he's a pretty good debater. if he's able to perform pretty well perhaps he can stem some of that momentum, at least dampen a little criticism heading into the debate next week in new york, buy the president a little time. if paul ryan clearly dominates in this debate it will be seen very much as a one-two punch and that will just mean more momentum. >> they've been, as we call it in college, cramming. how have both of them been preparing? >> reporter: yeah. it is like cramming. i think it's sort of like going back, studying for -- one aide told me it's like studying for the s.a.t.s in the middle of a campaign. they go over a lot of briefing materials. they're brushing up on domestic and foreign policy, getting to certainly know each other's positions on everything. there's a lot of sort of time spent aalone where th

and from new hampshire. the latest arg poll of likely voters shows mitt romney at 49% and president obama at 46%. that's in florida right now. that's within the sampling error. meanwhile, with just 25 days to go before election day there are some serious concerns about a republican financed voter registration effort in the state. cnn's crime and justice correspondent joe johns is joining us now with the latest on a criminal investigation making waves right here in washington. joe, what's going on? >> wolf he is a veteran gop operative who just doesn't seem to go away. a few weeks agoaway. a few weeks ago, a wave of bad publicity hit the waves. he was disavowed by the republican national committee. tonight, some democrats that criticize his tactics say they're worried he may still be operating in several key battleground states under a different company name. >> it all started with nathan sprule. they came under fire for providing false information at the supervisor of election office. they responded by throwing him under the bus even though he denies wrong doing.

obama than paul ryan did for mitt romney. >> but when you look at the cnn/orc poll that asks the question, who is in touch with the problems of people like you -- this is an area in which joe biden is considered to be very, very strong, right? he is the guy who talks to the middle class, did that a lot last night in the debate. it was actually paul ryan who was ahead. the polling there was 51% for paul ryan, 44% for joe biden. doesn't that make it impossible to read that as a victory for the democrats in an area that joe biden is supposed to be really strong in? >> i think these snap polls right after the debate aren't necessarily the best snapshot of how voters really feel about these debates. and they take a look at it over the course of time and see whose facts added up and whose facts didn't add up. when you saw paul ryan really pressed on the math of their tax plan, it opened that argument all the over again. because he really just couldn't make the math work. and he couldn't explain it in a way that the american people could be comfortable with. now, he says that there'

romney is a guy car. they keep misquoting him but let me tl you about the mitt romney i know. >> all right. so the cnn orc poll immediately after the debate found it to be basically a tie, maybe paul ryan a slight edge, 48% to 44%. anna, do you agree with those poll numbers or do you think there was a clear winner? >> i'm a republican pundit so i'm supposed to tell you i saw paul ryan crush joe biden but i took some truth serum this morning. i saw a draw. i think they both did very well and did what they needed to do. joe biden did a lot better than president obama and that's what he was being compared, to and i think paul ryan held his own against a very seasoned, one of the most veteran politicians in america today. they went to to toe, and i think the american people won. we saw a very good energetic debate where we saw two very clearly defined positions on practically everyish you a. >> so richard, you're a democrat, did you also drink some of that truth serum with anna? >> i missed the truth serum this morning. listen, i think that juden -- joe biden gets an a-plus from democrat

is on for the catholic vote. according to this pew forum on religion and public life, neither obama nor romney has a consistent lead among catholic voters as a whole. you see they're each polling at 40%. back in 2004, more than half of catholic voters chose president bush, even though his opponent, john kerry, is catholic. in 2008, more than half of catholic voters chose obama. flash forward to this year, both parties had america's highest profile catholic, new york archbishop timothy dolan give the closing. and i want to bring in eric mara podi. you live this, study this. conservative catholics would never vote for obama and biden because of their views on abortion, more progressive catholics question the morality of the romney/ryan budget choices. which do you believe is the more predominant view among american catholics? >> i think it is close to split dead even on this. i traveled around the country and talked to people and report on this all over. we see a pretty even divide and i think the two gentlemen we saw on the stage, vice president biden and congressman ryan are the perfect embodiment
